Peer Academic Coaching Introduction
More About Coaching
Coaches are different from a tutor because rather than help you with specific course material, a coach helps you develop your “soft” skills; things like studying, note-taking techniques and exam preparation. The coach also works to find the resources and people on campus to help you further. For example, if you’re having trouble with writing, a coach may help you identify where your problem areas are and might connect you with the Writing Centre. The coaches also highlight the student toolkits, which are collections of tried and tested student tips.
